  1. Happy Birthday Ryan!!! Oh! So this means that you are a sagittarius, fun loving, witty...... o.k. I'm just joking;) Just wanted to scare you a little on your birthday. I'm hoping that we can meet up this month and celebrate!
  2. This clip is so funny, it brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKPQbNoP5_s
  3. I am having a similar problem. I sent one PM today and when I received a reply I couldn't respond. I received this message: You cannot send another PM until Oct 24 2009, 05:41 PM. This also doesn't make sense because it is Oct 24 8:29 PM so according to the message I should be able to respond.
  4. I would love to buy or borrow this course as it is no longer available for purchase on the AR bookstore website. Thank you, Aubrey
  5. Christopher Hitchens is planning to do a full length documentary film called "God is not great", http://godbegone.blogspot.com/2009/05/god-...reat-movie.html
  6. I'm curious about where someone would go if they were after private instruction.
  7. I looked up "focus' In the Lexicon and I came across this quote: " concentration means undivided attention on some particular task or object . . . . It is an attention, an activity, devoted to a particular subject. Now, focus is more fundamental than that. You need to be in focus in order to concentrate, but focus is the particular “set” of your consciousness which is not delimited by the particular task, object, or action that you are concentrating on. You do have to focus on something, but focus is not [limited to] the continuing task that you are performing. The concept “focus” isn’t tied to the concrete . . . it remains the same no matter what you are focused on. It is the “set” of your mind." I understand that it is important to be in focus at all times, but what exactly are you supposed to focus on when you are doing easy, repetitive tasks? For example I brush my teeth for approximately 8 minutes every day, and my hair takes at least a half hour to dry with a blow dryer. Is it proper to focus on the process of brushing my teeth (which is very easy), or am I supposed to be thinking about something more important? Another example, when I am lying in bed trying to fall asleep, I let my mind wander. Would it be better to think about a book that I read that day? What about when you are doing household chores, or driving a route that you have driven many times?
  8. Hey man, figured I'd inform you that I am in fact moving up to Buffalo in the Fall. :)
